IN MY LIFE
I spent this morning at the doctor getting my annual physical. Interestingly enough, the American Heart Association just released its first set of new guidelines for blood pressure in 14 years. I’ve always had unusually low blood pressure (though it’s started to creep up in the past couple years), and thankfully, I’m still well below the guidelines. It used to be 140/90 and now it’s dropped to 130/80. With heart disease being the second highest killer in the US behind cigarette smoking, this deserves to be paid attention to.
Now that I’ve taken care of my body, I’m off to take care of my work for the day. I hope you all take a little extra time today to get outside, stop & take a deep breath, go for a walk or just call someone to tell them you love them. It will do you AND them a lot of good!
